J. Cole had the the whole rap world buzzing with his “Everybody Dies” and “False prophets” free styles, taking shots at his friend Wale, his former idol Kanye West and the Lil rappers. On “Everybody Dies,” Cole doesn’t name anyone, but Lil Uzi Vert and Lil Yachty did respond, both taking the high road. But apparently something from that track struck a nerve with Lupe Fiasco, and he’s decided to join the fun. The track is titled “N.E.R.D.,” (No One Ever Really Dies) and the new cut contains a few subliminals, calling out some of hip-hop’s rising stars, and rapping about artists being easily deceived by record labels. Now of course we could be mistaken but, Lupe is very good at sublime disses and the rap fans have already made the conclusion those shots are aim directly at Light-skin Jermaine: “Artist gettin’ robbed before they publishing/By dirty Jewish execs that think his arms from the covenant/I’ll retire when I’m tired, that’s a Firestone death.”
